to be no longer afraid to take a clear or decisive of stand on principles and issues and mitt romney has my appreciation for giving him fully to the effort. if he said or did things differently than i would have, so be it. he ran, and won the nomination and deserved my respect and support. you know, i know what it's like to be on the field and actually to be in the game. most of the the critics, never got much closer than the nacho stand and they've watched from the comfort of the sky boxes. look, i love politics, but i will tell you this, i'm glad it's over. you know?

it really is an ad about romney's character, and particularly this issue of trust wertyness is what they found in their internal research. it made people who watched it think he was profiting from laying people off and breaking promises to fund people's pensions and their health care plans, and those things were just -- it was a killer ad. >> you know, joy, we've been on so often and we've talked about this, but here you have a portrait a real life portrait of somebody who would have people build a stage, almost like driging their own grave and have them troop up on the stage and tell them you're dead here, you're finished. it's almost ma could cabremacab. >> we have talked about bill clinton as a super surrogate for barack obama. mike, the guy in that ad, he's a super anti-surrogate, an anti-validater of mitt romney. he looks like the voter that barack obama needed to change sides, that former reagan democrat, that white working class guy looking dead into the camera and saying this guy destroyed us. he took away our livelihood and he made us build the stage that we had to stand on
the election, that was not part of their argument, whereas becky was saying, romney was pushing the china issue on other things, as well. >> romney had harder rhetoric, but obama shifted in the middle of his term. he started out very soft on china, trying to be friendly, and china gave him nothing. so about halfway through his term, they started doing a lot stronger trade actions, filing some wto cases. and i think you'll see more and more of that. the u.s. chamber, everybody in washington is kind of geared up. >> what about all the corruption reports in china. >> it's very serious. because it used to be don't ask don't tell, you can gather assets, but don't be it too public about it. >> will it have an impact on the leadership today? >> yes. these guys are under a rock right now. this information is getting out. the party has to regain credibility with the people right now. the people are pretty fed up despite -- what's fun any abony china, all the progress and people are not happy. >> we heard they've been trying to block all the reports from making their way anywhere. >> they block everythin
on the coal industry. >> ken, what do you think went wrong here in terms of mitt romney's message? this should have been a big issue win for him. moving forward, we're going to have to correct that. what do you think about that? >> well, if you look sat the coal counties in ohio, romney did win. we just didn't get the numbers out of those counties to compare with some of the big urban counties and his tremendous advantage, meaning obama's tremendous advantage among 18, 19-year-olds and single women. so we're going to have to again as i do with the family research council, we put this -- this is not just a coal issue. this is an income issue. this is a job issue. this is an economic independence issue. and so we're going to have to frame it so working families begin to understand whether there are single mother head of households or two parent households that it is in their interest that this president looks at coal as a source of jobs, economic growth, and a lower cost of doing business in not only our state but in the nation. charles: you know, obviously, that's not going to happen with the a
for the person you most believe in, but it didn't pan out. we got over a million votes, and put a voice to issues that really needed a voice, and, you know, if i were to point at one factor, it was romney losing the race, and it was losing the race because he was not conservative enough on dollars and cents, and i think the republicans' social agenda turns off most americans. john: well, you did get 1% of the vote, which is pretty good, and a higher vote total than any libertarian has before, but it does seem to be a two-party country. people think republican or democrat. it's going to take some work to open brains. >> well, i think so, and then you talked in your earlier segment about initiatives that did pass. marriage equality, legalizing, regulating marijuana like alcohol in colorado. i think that -- i think that is going to change worldwide drug policy. wow. like i say, coloradoans get it, and they did it. i applaud colorado. john: you join us from new mexico, back in your home state, going to lick your wounds and go back to private life? [laughter] >> well, by "lick wounds ," i have a big p
to solve the country's problems. but the romney campaign never got to that. the other issue that ax thought really could have worked for romney is bipartisanship, to talk about how, as a republican governor and democratic state, he made it work. the romney campaign got to that late, probably too late. >> first debate. >> yeah, and mike, you also asked him what the biggest gift to the campaign was. was it the tape? was it the 47% tape? >> there was that, and he said they also made a terrible mistake at the end with that jeep commercial that we saw here on "morning joe" that had two automobile ceos coming out and calling romney who was supposed to be the business guy, the michigan native, calling him a liar basically. >> mike allen. >> that's not good. >> with a look at the "politico playbook." mike, thanks so much. >> at his age. >> for 102, he's good-looking. >> i tell you what. >> if i'm looking that good five or six years from now when i'm 102, i'll be happy. >> you know what it is? it's all that gingham pinafore. what is that? i don't know that what was. i don't know what i read there. >
stream. the positions of governor romney that he took in the primary on immigration reform. the positions that he took on women's health issues and contraception and planned parenthood drove large numbers of voters away from them, and then on economic, central to this election. they had a theory that frankly was not a popular theory in the country which is that you know, if we go back to tax cuts for the wealthy and deregulation that would profit everyone, and then for romney himself, there were specific things that he did. i think that the decision in the final week to try and litigate the auto bailout again, in ohio, had a tremendously negative impact there, and perhaps beyond ohio. so, you know, in the final analysis, there are a lot of factors here, but in the short-term, that was a very bad decision, in my view. >> people are looking to what happened and saying, look, the senate remains with democrat house with republicans. barack obama re-elected. not much change. how can we expect the washington machine, many consider fractured if not paralyzed to get things done? the speaker boehn
were the issues americans cared about. economy and then a big storm on the east coast. they covered it and they covered it pretty well. >> jon: the exit polls thought that voters mitt romney was better equipped to handle the economy than barack obama. >> then it says something about the attitude toward the two men and they made a choice or the two parties and they made a choice. if you just go by viewers, fox mrs. msnbc, romney should have won three to one. >> jon: exit polls, some suggest reflected sort of the media theme that barack obama is a kiachbd of the little guy and middle-class and mitt romney is a rich guy that only cares about rich guys? >> i think it's clear that obama is the person who is looking to have middle-class tax cuts and mitt romney was to give tax cuts to rich people. what i would say, the reason i don't think the media played as big of a role in this. the reason barack obama won is because he ran a superior campaign. it was very targeted in these battleground states. i would be more interested in seeing exit polls from the battleground states which unfortuna
women? in terms of choice. in terms of contraception. in terms of economic issues. in terms of equal pay for equal rights the lilly ledbetter thing which mitt romney says he would not have signed. >> exactly. you know, look, i think that the -- when it came down to it, the election was about the economy. and on the part of the voters as to who was better able to lead this economy into real growth and real prosperity and women overwhelmingly actually concluded that the kinds of programs that mitt romney and paul ryan are pitching are wrong for the country. at the same time, the women who did vote for romney and ryan, what i hear a lot from women and this is -- anecdotal but it is that oh, i'm not worried about reproductive rights. that's never going to happen. we're not really ever going to lose that. oh i worry about jobs. >> bill: think about the supreme court. >> right. exactly. we dodged a bullet, hugely. if romney had won this election, we would be look at absolutely the overturning of roe v. wade. one o
of step, you know on the hot button issues were that shouted down by fox news. why do you think mitt romney had to adopt this in sane immigration stance to get through the republican primary? you do it to please fox news, rush limbaugh, to please the right wing media and that's why the republican party is in such a trap. after mccain lost, they ceded all of their public authority to the media and now they're saying we need to get it back. good luck. >> stephanie: and we do and best of luck to them. eric boehlert, thank you. we'll see you next week, honey. >> what? >> stephanie: raise maxes on millionaires. we heard at the top of the hour, you heard norquist saying the president only won because he called mitt romney a poopy head. i must have missed that part. do we have it? yeah, here we go. i got to hear that again. and this is a guy named grover. >> the president was committed abelected on the basis that he was not romney and that romney was a poopy head. [ laughter ] >> this just in, grover norquist sadly drowned in a bathtub. >> stephanie: that's it. that's a good election analys
on exit polling. saidf the organization's or 2% ofs probably 1% of t the latino vote that mitt romney left on the table. this is still a small population. this is not the biggest issue that people were voting about. this is something that doesn't come not enough when people are talking about this because we know the conflict is about whether or not we need to give them a break if they broke the law. there's been a large underground employment community. these workers are exploited and they are not paid the wages they should be paid. you wonder how businesses would feel if they had to pay taxes on their employees and things like that. it becomes and on the dynamics -- it becomes an odd dynamic. host: denise, you are on with fawn johnson. caller: thank you for taking my call. i would like to utilize the word "illegal." if something is illegal, it is illegal. we're saying to up-and-coming generation that it is illegal but it is ok. that is my concern. they have to contribute and do it the right way. i have children and this concerns me. my children ask me if it is illegal, why we are allowing
